Together, we can change lives in our community.
LCH seeks to protect the privacy of our donors. For this reason, we guarantee that no personal information received through the donation process, whether it be conducted online, through personal communication, or through any other method, will be shared or sold with any other parties or organizations without the donor's explicit permission. Additionally, LCH will not use this information to send donors mailings on behalf of other organizations.
Your gift will provide essential medical care, respond to families facing financial and domestic crises and teach skills that will help clients get better jobs and support their families.
Did you know...
- An average patient costs LCH $770 per year to provide care, which is significantly less than the cost of a hospital to provide care to that same patient. This saves thousands of tax dollars each year.
- For every $100 raised at LCH, $81 goes back to providing direct services.
- Through the Affordable Care Act, LCH has on-site resources for any member in the community to be screened and to apply for the health insurance marketplace.
- LCH helps over 200 adults each year to learn English as a Second Language. These hard working students can now better communicate at work with their employers, and at home with their children.

Half of our members live on a family income of less than $29,000 a year, and 85% of our families live on a family income of less than $49,000. LCH provides health and community service that families would not otherwise afford. Your support sustains our mission.
In the current political environment, many of the families we serve need support to handle the stress and anxiety of potential separation. For several years, LCH has had a legal program that helps provide legal advice and referrals to our members. Now more than ever, this service is important to ensure our community has access to accurate information and resources. Please help us continue providing critical legal and mental health services to LCH’s families.

LCH Changes Lives
I can see this community growing, and getting stronger as a result of LCH's efforts. I am proud to be a part of this community, and so thankful to have a resource like LCH close by for our families.
Thanks to LCH, I have my life back. I found a job, and I was able to quit smoking.
I cannot say enough about LCH. Southern Chester county is a wonderful place to live because LCH strengthens our community.
